Lucia Top PDF Sewing Pattern


On-trend and oh-so summery, the Lucia Top is a holiday wardrobe must-have. With a fun frill and off-the-shoulder silhouette, Lucia makes adding a touch of glam to your outfit a breeze.

Deliciously simple to sew, Lucia features a front and back bodice, sleeve and frill, and stays in place with an elastic channel around the top of the frill. Keep it contemporary and pull the frill down to expose your shoulders, or let it rise onto your shoulders for a more everyday vibe. Surprisingly easy to wear, pair the Lucia Top with your favourite Ultimate Culottes, Ultimate Trousers or cute pair of shorts. Try her with the Ultimate Pencil Skirt for a seriously sultry look.

Easy to modify to suit your style, you can shorten the sleeves for warm days, crop the hem for an on-trend look, and even lengthen her into a dress. The frill allows you to have fun with colour-blocking too – why not sew the body and sleeves in a classic stripe and add a pop of solid colour with the frill?

Sewing Level
The Lucia is an advanced beginner level sewing pattern, ideal for those who have sewn a few garments before. It’s a great pattern for those new to sewing lightweight knits.

Fabric Suggestions
For the Lucia Top we recommend using lightweight knit fabrics with drape, such as lightweight viscose and lightweight cotton jerseys. Because the frill is cut as a circle, we recommend avoiding stripes and any fabrics with a strong one-way design. To find the perfect fabric, have a look at our specially curated suggestions.

Eden’s Lucia Top and both of Lisa’s are made in viscose jersey.

Fabric Requirements
The Lucia Top sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home. Simply download, print, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
